Our purpose as a worshiping community at St. Paul’s United Methodist Church is to give children the opportunity to grow in God’s love by actively learning about Jesus through Bible stories and building a strong foundation in Christian character. Children who attend St. Paul’s UMC experience God’s unconditional love and grace through interactive and meaningful fellowship while becoming disciples of Christ.
The primary way children learn and experience all of this at St. Paul’s UMC is through our Sunday School program. At the 9:30 and 11:00 services, after the Children’s Message, children ages two years old through the fifth grade have the choice of departing with the Sunday School teachers to go to their classroom or remaining in church with their friends or families for the rest of the service. At 9:30 on Sunday mornings children ages 2-5th grade can engage in a fully graded Sunday school program where the goal is to show your child the love of God as revealed through scripture. The 9:30 Sunday school hour typically hosts 80-100 children.
11:00 on Sunday mornings children ages 2-5th grade can participate in a multi age children’s church that teaches how to live as a disciple of Christ. Children in this small group Sunday school setting can enjoy a smaller, quieter setting for learning and growing.
When a child is here for the first time and wants to attend Sunday School, we request that someone accompany the child to the classroom when the children depart the sanctuary so that an adult may fill out a Sunday school registration form. Please feel free to return to the service after you have registered the child in class.
Children from birth through the 5th Grade must be signed out by an authorized person before departing the nursery or classroom.
Each child must have a current registration form on file. Click here for a printable version of the registration form.
